Does Testrail Plugin for Jira use a license?


Hi, I am looking at installing the Testrail free plugin for Jira and have a question. Does each Jira user who wants to view Testrail via the plugin need to be individually set up as an active user in Testrail as well? Or can they all share a common testrail login? Thanks.


To see live data in TR - every user needs a TR license.


Sorry for the late reply, thanks very much for your answer.

Since users with a Testrail license can already see in to Testrail, I’m not sure what the purpose of this plugin is? As far as I can see it gives another read only view from Jira… What use is a 2nd view? What is the benefit? Maybe there are dashboard/integration features that I’m not aware of?
